Oration is an absolute game changer! As a professional with an incredibly hectic schedule, this app has transformed the way I engage with scientific publications. Converting PDFs into audiobooks is a stroke of genius, allowing me to seamlessly absorb valuable information on the go. The clarity of narration is impeccable. Five stars for making my busy life a little easier and for bringing innovation to the realm of academic consumption. Highly recommend to anyone looking to optimize their learning while on the move!

To the developers, I have a few suggestions that I hope to see in future iterations:
- the page refresh isn’t very intuitive (you have to pull down the screen to refresh to get an update on the PDF processing status)
- split out PDFs that are still processing versus audiobooks that have completed processing into different pages on the app

Love it

As a scientist, I need to read a ton of papers daily, which is a hassle. This app has been a game-changer for me. It helps me identify papers that are going to be helpful to my research. Its ability to generate detailed summaries for each paper section is amazing. These summaries have become my go-to, especially during commutes. I love that to do my job, I don’t always need to be tied to a computer or drown in printed papers. I also use it for journal clubs when I don’t have time to read the entire paper but want to know what’s going on and be ready to discuss the science! Fantastic app

Game changing PDF Reader, better than competitors

There are definitely kinks to work out with this app but unlike competitors they take advice from their users and actively develop on it. Customer service is great and the UI is basic but intuitive. I’m looking forward to seeing where this app goes!
